๐ŸฆŽ WELCOME TO THE WILD๐ŸฆŽ
.
.
This week I had the absolute pleasure of welcoming these cute little sand lizards into their new home (and my outdoor office) Eelmoor Marsh SSSI (that stands for Site of Special Scientific Interest). ๐ŸฆŽ๐ŸŒฟ Sand Lizards are the UKโ€™s rarest lizard and this release is part of a captive breeding and reintroduction programme across Southern England by @marwellwildlife in partnership with Amphibian and Reptile Conservation. โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐ŸฆŽ
.
.
So why bother reintroducing them? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Well, despite the sand lizard (Lacerta agilis) occurring widely across Europe and Asia; sadly, the twentieth century saw drastic loss of sand lizard habitat in England ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ and Wales ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ and unfortunately they have disappeared from eight of the UKโ€™s counties. Without reintroduction programmes like this and continued habitat fragmentation and destruction these endangered lizards could become totally extinct in the wild. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸฆŽ
.
.
What makes this @uni_southampton PhD research programme and reintroduction particularly fascinating is that 24 of the 100+ lizards which have been released are safely and carefully radio-tagged following @naturalengland approval (each tag weighs less than 5% of the lizardโ€™s body weight and will fall off as the lizard sheds its skin) which will allow us to monitor their movements and behaviour for the next three weeks! Swipe left โฌ…๏ธ to check out their mini radio-tags or as I like to call them lizard backpacks. ๐ŸŽ’๐ŸฆŽ
.
.
It was SUCH a privilege to witness a positive conservation programme in action and itโ€™s pretty crazy that I can spend an afternoon with these reptiles and call it work. We often hear the bad news and chilling statistics about declining global biodiversity, but this folks for once is a GOOD NEWS story! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐ŸŒ .
.
The Sand Lizard is just one of many thousand endangered species. We NEED to continue the conversation about global biodiversity and species loss, so if like me you love wildlife and live in the U.K. why not join me in supporting @chris.packham in his #peopleswalkforwildlife in London this Saturday ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿพ caring is important, but using your voice and acting is even better! ๐ŸŒโœŒ๐Ÿผ

๐ŸŒป SUSTAINABLE SWAP SUNDAY ๐ŸŒป
.
.
I absolutely love filling my house with flowers, but canโ€™t help feeling guilty whenever I purchase supermarket flowers wrapped in plastic which have been conveniently flown in from overseas. ๐ŸŒปโœˆ๏ธ In fact, I recently learnt that The Netherlands is a major exporter of cut flowers, accounting for 55% of trade followed by Colombia (18%), Ecuador (9%) and Kenya (6%). The latter countries are rather far from my home in London! ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒป
.
.
Now donโ€™t get me wrong Iโ€™m not saying donโ€™t ever buy me flowers, but I personally have made a conscious effort to cut back on the amount of bunches I buy for myself (yep call me sad but I buy myself flowers) ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. When I do, I opt for the flowers in season and where possible grown in my country ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง, and I also do my best to avoid plastic wrapping and definitely ALWAYS refuse that additional pointless plastic carry bag that seems to have evaded the 5p carrier bag charge! ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒป Also, instead of buying cut flowers which will eventually die, Iโ€™ve also taken to buying houseplants which will last as well as you look after them and also do a fantastic job of improving your indoor air quality. ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒต
.
.
Iโ€™m posting this photo as itโ€™s probably as THE most sustainable cut flower Iโ€™ve had in my house ๐ŸŒป - a sunflower grown on my dads allotment and stored in my @kilneruk water bottle which also doubles up as a vase! Thereโ€™s something so sweet about having a flower grown, cut and given to you from someone special.๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒฟ
.
.
In the grand scheme of things this swap is a small one, but itโ€™s taught me how much effort goes into growing flowers ๐ŸŒป, their potential embodied carbon emissions from air freight and transport โœˆ๏ธ and how much fun it is to look after your own little indoor plant babies. If youโ€™ve got a window-ledge make it green! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒต

๐ŸŒณ FINDING GREEN IN THE CITY ๐ŸŒณ
.
.
Iโ€™m back from my mini break in The Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ and yesterday I found my happy place (zoom into to see my happy face) at @hortusamsterdam - one of the oldest botanical gardens in Europe (established in 1638) and a must see if youโ€™re in Amsterdam! ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ I really canโ€™t seem to keep away from the botanical gardens, this morning I ran 10k ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ @kewgardens yet another green city gem. Maybe I should go on a European tour of all the botanical gardens? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒณ
.
.
What I loved so much about @hortusamsterdam is how it reminded me of our reliance on nature. For example, trees and plants not only regulate our atmosphere, provide soil structure, give us food and building materials (as if that wasnโ€™t enough) but thanks to their ability to synthesize a wide variety of chemical compounds that are used to perform important biological functions ALSO provide us lot with essential medicines! ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ”ฌ
.
.
You donโ€™t need a degree in horticulture to spot a silver birch (betula pendula) and youโ€™ve probably walked past one a million times, but did you realise that itโ€™s bark contains betulinic acid which is used to fight cancerous cells and HIV? Also, Taxol a common chemotherapy medication is found in the bark of yew trees ๐Ÿ’Š๐ŸŒณ Salicylic acid, which is a key component of aspirin, is derived from Willow bark. Morphine, codeine, opium are all used for pain replied and derived from the poppy plant. ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’Š
.
.
When you consider that biologists estimate there are over 5 million species of plants and animals still to be found ๐Ÿ” and specifically there are still nearly one-fifth of vascular plants left to discover (not including an unknown number of plant algae species) it really makes you wonder what else is out there that could help progress medicine and healthcare. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒณ Destroying diverse and previously untouched habitats could be destroying the single species that could make incurable diseases curable. Now thereโ€™s a scary thought! ๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿƒ

๐Ÿ—‘๐ŸŒŽ THE FINAL STRAW ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ—‘
.
.
This #sustainableswapsunday is coming to you thanks to @friendlypandaco ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒฑ when I first started my zerowaste journey I was extremely careful to not fall into the trap of purchasing lots of eco products. I simply went without straws for ages ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ which wasnโ€™t a problem until it hit summer and I realised that cocktails (yep cocktails) full of crushed ice were extremely difficult to drink, so I found a purpose for a reusable stainless steel straw. ๐Ÿธ๐ŸŒŽ
.
.
My stainless steel straw has been FAB, but being narrow itโ€™s not so great at sucking up all the chunky bits of fruit in my smoothies (the best bit in my opinion) ๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒ๐ŸŽ so I found a need and a purpose for a wider bamboo straw! ๐ŸŽ‹๐Ÿผ Bamboo is naturally antibacterial (although I always use my pipe cleaner after use), can be grown without pesticides or chemical fertilisers, grows incredibly fast and can actually help rebuild eroded soil! ๐ŸŽ‹๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
.
I expect this one to be my final straw! My take home message this Sunday is THINK before you buy! What swaps have you made this week? โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒŽ

๐ŸŒ๐Ÿซ VEGAN BANANA BREAD ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿซ
.
.
I canโ€™t think of a better way to kickstart the weekend than a banana bread. Hereโ€™s a picture of my loaf which went down a storm last weekend our zerowastepicnic with @kimberleysaysok and @theyogagirllondon ๐Ÿ—‘๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Keep on reading for the the recipe below!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒ
.
.
Some of you probably know that I moved to a vegetarian diet over a year ago when @cowspiracy opened my eyes to the impacts of animal agriculture. ๐Ÿ„๐ŸŒŽ Now Iโ€™m having fun experimenting with vegan recipes, but taking things at my own pace. โœŒ๐ŸผSome people are all or nothing and are able to switch their diet overnight which I completely admire. Personally, I know an immediate switch isnโ€™t something I couldnโ€™t sustain so Iโ€™m enjoying making this lifestyle change at a rate that works for me! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ
.
.
I made this banana bread even more sustainable by selecting the brown bruised bananas which wouldโ€™ve been thrown away by the supermarket ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ—‘ opted for organic flour ๐ŸŒพ and I also reduced my waste by greasing the tin with vegetable oil rather than using baking paper! ๐Ÿ—‘๐ŸŒ
.
.
So without further ado, here is the recipe. Sift 200g of plain flower, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in a bowl ๐Ÿฅ„๐ŸŒ then in my @thenutribullet wizzed together 4 ripe bananas, 175ml of vegetable oil, 200g of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿณ๐Ÿฅ„ then mix the two dry and wet ingredients together with 120g of roughly chopped vegan chocolate and pop in a loaf tin and in the oven at 180 degrees for 40 minutes! ๐Ÿซ๐ŸŒฑ Simple, no faff, tasty and a great first experience of vegan baking! ๐Ÿซ๐ŸŒ Whatโ€™s your fav vegan recipe? Let me know below!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒŽ

๐ŸŒŽ PICNIC FOR THE PLANET ๐ŸŒŽ
.
.
Yesterday @kimberleysaysok, @theyoggirllondon and I ran our plastic free picnic in Clapham Common and what a wonderful day it was! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโ˜€๏ธ Practising yoga with the grass beneath your feet and being surrounded by people sharing and enjoying a green space together made it so easy to reconnect with nature. Thanks @theyogagirllondon ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒณ
.
.
I had the opportunity to give a talk about my #sustainableswapsunday series and my journey to sustainability. Iโ€™ve been running this page for over a year now and yesterday was a great opportunity to reflect on the positive changes Iโ€™ve made. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ Whether you cut down on plastic, get out out on a litter pick, make a swap to your diet or refuse the straw ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ - together these small changes collectively make a difference, and YOU are doing your bit! Remember nobody is perfect, sustainability is a constant trade off as everything has a carbon and ecological footprint ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ‘ฃ make the sustainable swaps at a pace which is comfortable for you and itโ€™s likely youโ€™ll sustain it for a lifetime! ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒฟ
.
.
And then FOOD, oh my goodness, this was a zero waste dream and Tupperware heaven! I was so excited to see what a zero waste picnic looked like, and it looked BEAUTIFUL! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿฅช Everyone delivered on the food and I got some serious inspiration for some more vegan dishes ๐ŸŒฑ everyone brought reusable cutlery๐Ÿดplates ๐Ÿฝ and there was no need to make any trips to the bin! ๐Ÿ—‘ My vegan chocolate banana bread went down a storm so Iโ€™ll be posting the recipe on the gram soon! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿซ
.
.
A year ago when I first started this journey I never wouldโ€™ve thought that Iโ€™d be speaking at an event, and Iโ€™m SO grateful to have met some wonderful human beings through the โ€˜gram. Already looking forward to the next! ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒŽ SUSTAINABLE SWAP SUNDAY ๐ŸŒŽ
.
.
Today is a great day because yesterday I announced the winner of the @decathlonbrentcross @decathlonuk giveaway and today is the day of our #zerowastelondon plastic free picnic in Clapham Common with @kimberleysaysok and @theyogagirllondon ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐ŸŒณ
.
.
Picnics are a key offender of single-use disposable plastic and I previously wouldโ€™ve prepared for a picnic by purchasing disposable cups, plates, cutlery๐Ÿดand sandwiches wrapped in plastic.๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ—‘
.
.
Instead Iโ€™ve kept it sustainable by preparing by making my own quinoa, avocado, coriander, lime and mango salad ๐Ÿฅ— selecting loose organic ingredients and even some coriander from my herb garden! ๐Ÿฅ‘๐ŸŒฟ My recipe will be on my page soon! Iโ€™m also enjoying experimenting with vegan baking ๐ŸŒฑ and have baked a banana chocolate chip bread ๐ŸŒ itโ€™s amazing how blended bananas basically act JUST like eggs and butter binding together your cake ingredients perfectly! ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŒ and of course any leftover scraps went straight into my compost! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿปโ™ป๏ธ
.
.
I canโ€™t WAIT to see how beautiful this plastic free picnic is going to look and love that weโ€™ll be leaving the park as it was when we arrived! Imagine the huge impact we could make if everyone had a plastic free picnic! ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ—‘ .
.
.
Also who else only recently discovered that cutting your mango like this is an absolute game changer! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ”ช

๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒธ SUSTAINABLE SWAP SUNDAY ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿƒ
.
.
This Sundayโ€™s post is about a small positive change Iโ€™ve made to my outlook on supporting wildlife at home and also a sustainable product which I picked up at @kewgardens today! ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒณ
.
.
Living in London means I donโ€™t have much of a garden, in fact itโ€™s more of a patch (about 2 metres squared). I had previously thought that this little space provided a limited value to nature and that there was no point in me gardening for wildlife. After all, I have a patch, not a field, and iโ€™d have to wait until I owned a โ€˜properโ€™ garden to call myself a gardener or horticulturalist. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿก
.
.
Iโ€™m not sure exactly what triggered my change in outlook, but over the past few months Iโ€™ve seen this little patch as an opportunity to learn and create a haven for wildlife and realised thereโ€™s actually a lot you can do with a small space! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป My top tip if like me youโ€™re short on space is simply POTS! You can stick them by the door, hang them out your window or keep them on your balcony. You can plant wildflowers for bees ๐Ÿ veggies for your plate ๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ… or herbs for your dinner! Swipe left โฌ…๏ธ to see my new mini herb garden of thyme, coriander and rosemary! ๐ŸŒฟ Whatโ€™s great is that this supports my zerowaste lifestyle as I no longer need to buy herbs in plastic packaging. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ—‘
.
.
Iโ€™m super excited to improve my patch with these @seed_ball pots which suit my needs perfectly! I purchased a bee and poppy mix ๐Ÿ which contains 20 wildflower balls and 100 seeds perfect for pollinators! Each ball is covered in clay to protect the seeds, chilli powder to deter pests ๐ŸŒถ and compost to give the seeds a head start. Theyโ€™re SUPER easy to plant, just scatter them where you fancy and watch them grow! ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒฑ I also love that these come in a recyclable or reusable tin and that the @seed_ball offices are powered by 100% renewable energy! I canโ€™t wait to show you the results! ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
.
Just because you donโ€™t have the biggest garden doesnโ€™t mean you canโ€™t support nature! These seedballs could be thrown on a communal area of grassland (although perhaps ask permission before lobbing these over your neighbours fence)! Perhaps we should leave not only footprints, but @seed_ballโ€™s too? ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒธ

๐ŸŒ Sustainable Swap Sunday ๐ŸŒ
.
.
Itโ€™s never too late for a #sustainableswapsunday and this week Iโ€™m using my new @doyourbit.uk produce bags from @plasticfreedom_ to cut down on my grocery shopping waste! ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ—‘๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Iโ€™ve noticed that by selecting just the bread rolls I need, rather than buying a multipack wrapped in plastic Iโ€™m also cutting down on my food waste too! Theres not a stale bread roll in sight in my kitchen (although stale bread is great for bread crumbs so donโ€™t throw it away)! ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ—‘
.
.
Iโ€™ve recently got back into making my own bread in my @panasonickitchen bread maker, it is honestly SO simple, and investing in a bread maker has been an absolute game changer. Simply bung all of the ingredients: flour, water, yeast, salt and sugar (all of which are in recyclable packaging) ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ“ฆ, in the night before and violร  you wake up in the morning to the smell of fresh bread ๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ plus it even makes pizza dough, so you can avoid those plastic wrapped styrofoam bases. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ—‘๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
.

Who else is has cut out plastic wrapped rolls and bread for a more sustainable option? ๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿž
